SALT LAKE CITY — You won’t be surprised to find out that “Avengers: End Game” is one of the most highly anticipated films for next week.

What’s going on: A new poll from USA Today and Fandango asked moviegoers to identify which films they’re most excited for in 2019.

Method: The survey polled more than 3,500 visitors to Fandango.

'Avengers': “Avengers: Endgame” topped the list as fans waited to see what happens in aftermath of “Avengers: Infinity War,” when several lovable heroes like Spider-Man, Black Panther and Star-Lord became nothing but ash.

  • “There’s 10 years of investment built into this series,” said Erik Davis, Fandango’s managing editor, according to USA Today. “Fans are dying to see how it ends."
  • “They were definitely happy with the last ‘Avengers,’ but it was a bit of a hard pill to swallow, as entertaining as it was. … Do they bring these characters back? This film is going to set the stage for whatever the next iteration of these Marvel movies is.”

Other top favorites: “Captain Marvel” finished as the second-most popular film, followed by “Star Wars: Episode IX.”
